Bout of Books 11 ~ Start of Day 1

Bout of Books

It's here, it's here, it's here!! :) It's Bout of Books time, and OMG am I up EARLY. The problem, for me, with making plans to get up early is that I do NOT sleep when I make plans. If I got an hour of sleep, I'm surprised. Oh well, here I am now, and I'm doing the challenges to get this started, then it's off to the books. With my GOALS being what they are, I need to get started on reading! :) Keep an eye on this post, I'll be updating my reading stats through the day then post a re-cap tonight. If you follow me on Bloglovin' (the only place I use to follow blogs), I'll follow you back. If you use something else, let me know you are following me, and I'll follow you on Bloglovin'.

After I do the challenge, it's time to start reading. I listened to an audio before bed, but that will just be my night time reading right now. To start off the day, 1st up ~ Our Broken Sky by Sarah Harian. 2nd ~ Fated by Benedict Jacka. 3rd ~ Dead Don't Lie by L.R. Nicolello. 4th ~ Cursed by Benedict Jacka.

As for the informal challenge, I don't do photos of myself (no camera, and ewwwww), so none of that, plus I don't use Twitter, Instagram or Tumblr. Those things just aren't for me. I'm more of a rambler and that stuff is for people who don't like to talk much. So, I'll just be doing what I can here at my blog.


The first challenge comes from The Book Monsters and is a Book Scavenger Hunt. No #4 as I don't read poems or short stories.

1. A Book that begins with “B” (for Bout of Books!)
(My favorite "B" titled book!)

2. A book that has been made into a movie/tv show

3. A series you love

5. A book on your TBR shelf, or your full TBR shelves
(Books being released 8/26 that I'm waiting on!)

The second challenge is about making playlists. Since I only listen to a few artists (Pentatonix!!), I'll skip this challenge. :(

  1. Yay!! Have fun and happy reading! I'm at work but I hope to read over lunch and do the challenge. :)

    1. I hope you were able to leave and are enjoying BoB!

  2. I am looking forward to the Scalzi book. I just can't decide if I want the Will Wheaton or Amber Benson narrated version of it. WHY do they have to give me options.

    1. I don't know if I've heard of Amber Benson, I'll have to look for her. But I'm a Wheaton fan, so I'm definitely listening to his. :)

  3. I cannot wait for the Scalzi book, I'm new to him but I've liked everything I've read so far.
    Good luck and have fun reading! :)

    1. I have only read Redshirts, but I loved it. Looking forward to Wil Wheaton's audio of it.

  4. Nice answers for the challenge I've only read Maze runner out of the list.
    My response is here

  5. You have done super on just day one alone!! Wow!! You are already making me feel behind.

  6. You're doing great! I really wish I could get into doing the audio book thing. I would either space out and not pay attention to the book or just plain fall asleep. I'm awful.
